When most people think of sports, halls of fame, and sports art they focus on the professional “greats” especially they have been depicted in art in the past.
When I was offered the opportunity to exhibit I decided that I wanted to show the pre-professionals sport. The little kids just starting out in soccer and track and the serious adults who, though not pro caliber, have the same enthusiasm.
I put the word out to friends and on Facebook that I would love to see their photos and videos. I took my own as well and from all the info found myself with a collection of reference material.
- An old photo I took of Ille Nastase serving in a tennis tournament many decades ago.
- Kayakers filmed by our builder’s son of he and friends white water kayaking in Oregon.
- My granddaughters soccer team.
- My daughter on a bike.
Some are mere impressions handled very loosely and others more delineated. Each reflects my feeling of the moment and hopefully you will enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed painting them.
Stay tuned for more information on this showing coming to Portsmouth, Virginia.
